Abstract (en)

A card connector (10) into and from which a memory card (60) is detachably inserted and removed, includes contacts (14) each adapted to contact a connection portion of the memory card (60), and a housing (12) for arranging and holding said contacts (14) and having an inserting opening (22) for inserting the memory card (60). The housing (12) includes two side walls (24), a rear wall (26), and a lower wall (28) contiguous to these side and rear walls to form the inserting opening for the memory card by these walls (24,26,28). A shell (16) is arranged on the side of the housing (12) opposite from the lower wall (28), and an elastically deformable tray (18) is arranged on the lower wall so as to be slidable with the aid of a tray restraining plate (20). The card connector (20) is miniaturized and lighter, more compact and simple in construction and is easy to remove a memory card (60).
